I received my M.Sc. degree in Micro and Nanotechnology Engineering from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologias, Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2015. During my academic journey, I had the opportunity to develop the master thesis, Oxide transistors produced by solution: Influence of annealing parameters on properties of the insulator, at Cenimat|i3N, with the supervision of Prof. Dra. Rita Branquinho (FCT-UNL) and co-supervision of Prof. Dra. Elvira Fortunato.

After that, I worked as research fellow during one year and a half on a partnership between CENIMAT|i3N and Merck Chemicals LTd., focused on the application of organic materials in electronic.

Lately, I started my PhD in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with the topic “Multifunctional and transparent low cost metal oxide electronics”. In this subject we aim to develop low-temperature solution processed high-k dielectric metal oxides (Al2O3, HfO2 and multicomponent mixtures) and their application in low consumption printable integrated circuits.
